The << and >> brackets tell LilyPond to print the staves and contexts within them concurrently.

Aha! This would not have occurred to me, but now that I see it, no other
configuration makes sense. Of course chord names live outside of the staff.
Thanks for this fix; I will apply it right now. One follow-up question that
might sound obvious: What do the double angle brackets signify? Do they
group contexts together so they appear together? Is it something more

Again, many thanks. I was pulling my hair out over this.

P.S. Sorry Alexander if you're getting this twice... I forgot to CC the list.
